LG Electronics has unveiled its newest additions to the LG gram series, including the high-performance LG gram Pro models 16Z90SP and 17Z90SP, alongside updated versions of the LG gram 17, 16, 15, and 14 laptop models 17Z90S, 16Z90S, 15Z90S, and 14Z90S. Complementing these is the versatile LG gram Pro 2-in-1 laptop, model number 16T90SP.
Revolutionary AI Features and Connectivity
Among the groundbreaking features of the 2024 LG gram series is the integration of the LG gram Link app. It introduces AI functionality that allows streamlined file and photo sharing and screen mirroring across multiple devices, including other LG gram laptops, and Android and iOS devices. Executing AI-related workloads offline is made possible by Intel's neural processing unit, Intel AI Boost. Additionally, a key photo management tool provides practical sorting through keyword identification, creating an enhanced, user-centric experience.
High-Performance Components in Sleek Designs
The Pro models boast an Intel Core Ultra processor consisting of a hybrid architecture, an NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD for swift data access, and an optional NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card that adds considerable power for graphic-intensive tasks. Further enhancing the functionality of these laptops is the LG gram Link app, which offers an interconnected ecosystem, allowing users to operate smartphones and tablets using the LG gram's keyboard and mouse, indicative of LG's effort to promote device synergy.
The LG gram Pro models distinguish themselves with a dual cooling system to manage heat dissipation, assuring the laptops remain cool during intensive operations. The visual experience is equally impressive, with near-perfect color space coverage. While the Pro laptops with OLED capabilities boast 100% DCI-P3 color space coverage, models with LCD screens come very close at 99%. The 16-inch and 17-inch Pro models feature Wide Quad XGA resolution, with varied refresh rate options to cater to different user preferences.
For those seeking a blend of laptop performance and tablet convenience, the LG gram Pro 2-in-1 offers a 360-degree hinge, a responsive touchscreen, and a wirelessly chargeable pen, all housed within a 4-way bezel design. This model promises adaptability and seamless user interactions, from content creation to presentation.
Enhanced Viewing Experiences and Portability
Apart from the Pro variants, LG's refreshed gram series laptops have been outfitted with high-brightness IPS panels featuring a glare coating for an improved visual experience. All models come equipped with a Full-HD webcam, leveraging software such as LG Glance by Mirametrix to enhance user security.
The Pro models showcase a combination of lightness and robustness, with weight starting at 1,199g for the integrated graphics models, increasing slightly for those with discrete graphics due to the additional hardware. The battery capacity varies accordingly to support the increased power needs, ensuring that portability does not compromise performance.
CES 2024 Showcase Awaits
Those keen to witness LG's latest innovations firsthand will have the opportunity at CES 2024, where LG plans to feature its new gram series. The event, set to take place from January 9 to January 12, 2024, will provide visitors an exclusive look at the brand's commitment to technological advancement in the personal computing space. Just yesterday, LG announced a new AI robot that offers multimodal AI capabilities for smart homes.
Equipped with a unique two-legged wheel design, the AI agent boasts the ability to independently navigate spaces while demonstrating multi-modal technology for verbal interaction. It can express emotions through a series of gestures and movements made possible by its articulated leg joints. LG's approach to robotics also extends to the AI agent's ability to recognize voices and images and process natural language, enhancing its ability to understand and respond to user interactions within the context of the conversation.
